  Check It Out: Bill should hire Kasparov to be his coach.

  HeMateMe: If Bill had just teamed up with Paul Allen in this game, they could have taken down the Norse kid.
Jan-25-14  GumboGambit: According to Rybka, premature deployment of Windows 8 was a colossal blunder. Development of Windows Mobile also leaves something to be desired. And don't get Rybka started on Zume.

Rybka finds it ironic that the computing industry continues to be infected with human error.

Jan-25-14  simsan: I don't know if Mr. Gates would have played this game if he had known it would spawn a "player page" on
Jan-25-14  chessmoron: After the match, Bill Gates bought Norway and deport the kid.

  wordfunph: world's richest vs world's chess champion


Jan-25-14  waustad: At least he took the Carnagie route instead of remaining a ruthless monopolist.
Feb-09-14  dumbgai: Carlsen only had 30 seconds for the game, and wasted several seconds fumbling a piece on his first move. If only Bill Gates didn't walk into a mate, he might have won via flag. Looks like he needs to get some 1-minute practice on ICC.

  HeMateMe: No increments? I could beat MC with a 30 second window.
Premium Chessgames Member
  hoodrobin: I used to play DOS too.
Premium Chessgames Member
  alexmagnus: <HMM> Sure? Against Monsen (with 30 seconds against 3 minutes) MC won (mate) in 26 moves. And still had 11 seconds remaining.
Premium Chessgames Member
  HeMateMe: Bring it on! I'll beat the boy Viking like santa beats his reindeer!
Feb-10-14  the.raven: I bet Bill Gates is the player with the least number of moves played in database.
Premium Chessgames Member
  alexmagnus: <the.raven> that is Lance Darling
Mar-14-14  technical draw: The kid is honorable. He rejected $100 million to lose on purpose. Did I say honorable? I meant estúpido..
Premium Chessgames Member
  norami: Billionaire Bill says in twenty years half the jobs will be replaced by robots. That means half of us can devote our lives to goofing off while the other half, and the robots, do the work.
Mar-14-14  technical draw: Uh, <norami>. what happens if you're the working half?
Premium Chessgames Member
  norami: <technical draw> You work.
Premium Chessgames Member
  norami: I stumbled across this just by accident to see it was exactly two years ago I made that concise comeback to < technical draw>. So, 18 years before half of us can start goofing off.
Jul-05-16  technical win: Bill Gates created 12 zillion jobs, and I have three of them.
